Not sure what agenda someone who is concerned about albatrosses might have. Shocking that sailors would be against cleaning our waterways. Was the Clean Water Act a bad idea? Should we be permitted to dump oil and fuel into the water? There is a giant mess of plastic in the ocean. It's a fact.

Hardalee, it took me awhile to find the right harddrive and folder so could use your post as a example of onion peeling.
You sight a link by the MB Aquarium as to say " if they say it, it must true "; well, here's peeling the onion in reverse.
Starting several layers in with Dave Fenton (Fenton Communications) this will lead you to EMS ( Environmental Media Sources ) now, understand what their purpose in life has been since the mid 90's. EMS exists to make money, it turns a profit for Fenton Communications by improving the bottom lines of a wide variety of Fenton clients. ( Environmental & Reseach Orgs )
Once you get pass that layer, next you'll see who funds them, such as the Tides foundation, Pew and Packard and the likes; research their history and agendas.
Once you're able to stop shaking your head in disgust, look up who their frequent donees are and you will find the likes of SeaWeb, NRDC, Environmental Defense, National Audubon Society, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
I know this was a half assed ( missing a lot of info, but it's kinda late ) however, you should get the idea here, someone at the MB Aquarium prints what is needed and in return MB Aquarium gets it's much needed funding.( that kind of money doesn't come from gate fees and public donations )
There is always a agenda or ulterior motive
